first, i'd like to extend a big thanks to everyone who has commented, +fav, and watched me. i'm glad to know that my work is still being noticed, despite my lack of activity.
second, I'M STILL ALIVE, SO NO WORRIES GUYS. :] not like people have noticed/care haha. but yeah, it's summertime now, i've graduated high school, and have a bunch of free time now. i hope to upload some work i've done this year sometime soon [since i actually have all of my artwork now]. i also have a few vectors that i've started [and neglected] so i want to get some of those finished up. i also bought watercolors, brushes, and watercolor paper yesterday and i plan to start working with that medium and hopefully produce some nice portraits or whatnot. i'm stoked for this summer in terms of getting art done.
if anyone is curious - but i really am just saying this because i'm extremely proud of myself - i'm going to college in the fall, and it happens to be the college of my dreams, the College for Creative Studies [in Detroit]. i visited there on a field trip when i was in grade school, and ever since then i've wanted to go to CCS. it took me a few years to decide what major i wanted to pursue, but i eventually discovered my passion and i become more and more excited each day. i'm going to major in graphic design and i'm considering a minor in advertising, since gd and advertising are so closely related. i'm so proud of myself; i consider this the greatest accomplishment in my life thus far. i had not taken an actual, legit art class until my sophomore year in high school. after intro to art, i jumped right into studio art and then AP studio, advanced drawing, and digital design my senior year. i recognize the tremendous growth in myself in just 3 years and it makes me beam with happiness. i never would have thought, 4 years ago, that i would be attending art school - not just any art school, but one of the top art & design colleges in the WORLD. when i was applying in the fall to CCS, i have to say i was a bit nervous. CCS was where my heart was, i didnt know what i was going to do if i didnt get in/didnt receive enough money. i know i'm pretty good at what i do and have done, especially for my age. but i'm not one of those overly confident people; i'm much more humble and like "yeah, i'm pretty good, but not like amazing or anything." so knowing my viewpoints on myself, you can see why i'm just so proud of myself for being accepted and admitted to, and receiving scholarships from, CCS.
okay now that i'm done rambling about how excited i am for college, i'm going to find something to do.
look for more artwork all summer long from me! :]
